close, the president's strategy is to go directly to the american people. you can't go to the city of chicago, even though you want to talk about opportunities, social programs, mental health services, increase in the minimum wage and all of the rest, you can't go to a place like chicago and not talk about gun violence. so what he's trying to do, i think, is say, look, this is not a rural issue versus an urban issue. this is an american issue. it's just one more way that -- he understands what the political odds are in congress for a ban on assault weapons. he gets that. but this is just one way for him to make the case to the american people to pressure members of congress and lots of them, by the way, as you know are democrats who are in districts where it might not be so popular. >> or states. >> or states. pressure members of congress with him at least in part of his gun proposals. >> dan lothian is also taking a look at this. this has been a manl juror problem in the city of chicago. president obama's hometown. here's dan with more on that. >> reporter: jim, the president is a
not otherwise see. that's why i love my job. yesterday, i learned what a great city mobile, alabama, is. it's alabama's major port. it's very pretty when you fly into it by air. it looks like a mini empire state building when you fly in. it's a major ship building hub, and now it's an airplane manufacturing hub. airbus is builts in mobile, and they're going to produce 40 to 50 airplanes a year. that's a big deal. airbus referred to the tradition of beauty and charm in the release, describing why it picks the city for such a major investment, and airbus is right. you have seen some of the pictures. it is a really pretty town. america's first mardi gras, by the way, ever held in mobile. and the drive from the airport, about ten miles from the airport to the port, even past the strip malls that every town in america has, was truly pretty. spanish moss draped across the bows, and beautiful southern style buildings, mansions, and even stores. america is so full of great cities, and we are lucky to get to see them. here is to beautiful mobile, on a wonderful weekend. thanks so much for watching.
you think the city's response has been so far to the blizzard? >> it's been great. they have given us a lot of notice and the signs on the highways and the emergencies on the internet and other signs across the city. it's been -- they have prepared us well. >> i know you guys also stocked up on supplies. earlier, some of the supermarkets in the city were running out of milk, running out of bread. i think you have plenty of other types of supplies to keep you busy. >> we might have other supplies to keep us busy, but we are also, you know, do have supplies and water and things like that. but you know, we are trying to realize that we will be here for the weekend and trying to make sure we have everything that will keep us sustainable through that time period. >> they were telling me earlier, anderson, they hadn't seen snow like this in a few years? >> long time. >> a few years, gut obviously, we still have a lot more to go before the night is over. >> jason, we'll be checking with you. we'll be on the air for two hours and more coverage after that, so all night long. a short drive down
morning city and they just dump the snow in the hudson river. so we'll see what they did decide to do in boston. indra peterson, thank you so much and welcome aboard to cnn here for us in boston this morning. >>> good news if you're trying to get out of the northeast. all major airports are up and running today after more than 2,000 flights across the nation were canceled yesterday according to flight aware tracking. more than 5,000 have been canceled the entire weekend. that might mean some longer than usual wait times today. so bring a book. and a lot of patience. >>> power crews are working to restore electricity to some 400,000 people across nine states. massachusetts and rhode island were hit the hardest. >>> more than two dozen people will be waking up in a long island walmart this morning. road conditions became too dangerous for shoppers to leave during the blizzard, so walmart allowed them to stay. i guess they probably have plenty of things to eat and certainly tooth brushes. one customer said she threw in the towel after spending at least seven hours trying to drive just tw

see some of our equipment, as well. this is downtown providence in front of city hall that is actually still complete lly desolate. the power outages, not only in providence, but the entire state, nearly 200,000 homes without power, but 20% of the population of the entire state that has been hit, no power, no heat, major concern. no reading yet from the power company on how long it's going to take to get those power lines back up. what happened here is that wet, thick snow that we had all night because the temperatures are a bit warmer, that weighed on the power lines, trees that fell on power lines and this is the problem. staying off the roads because they need to be cleared so that the power company can get to where they need to address the issue. but overall here in providence, things are looking up, in rhode island, they have opened up some of those big bridges out to newport closed overnight because of that gusting wind. so things are getting progressively better here by the hour. let's go to mary snow, she's in staten island where things are subsided a lot in the past few hours,

-case scenario to worst-case scenario. what we have today, from new york city, and all to have the boroughs, from new york city and also from bergren county into parts of new jersey, all the way up to portland, all under blizzard warnings right now. there are 23 million people that live in that blizzard warning right now. 23 million affected by this blizzard. and so here's the best-case scenario for the at least amount of snow. a computer model that doesn't believe the merger is going to happen. so 9.7 in albany, 7.5 in new york city, 13 in portland, only 12 in boston. you can only hope that that would happen. this is the miss. this is if it's the best possible scenario. this, now, is the other side of the coin. the storm that does combine, the moisture does get in there, and you get the cold and the warm to mix, 34 in boston, 26 in providence, 14.3 in new york. which one do you believe? well, it's still going to probably come down a little bit farther and farther, as these models get closer and closer to when the snow starts, compared to when the snow ends. we talked about that yesterday, how it

badge was also found in the city. but dorner's shooting spree may have started days ago here in irvine. on sunday morning, monica quan, the daughter of a police official named in his manifest oh, was shot and killed along with her fiance while sit in their car. on wednesday, police officially named dorner as the suspect. quan, who was 27, was the daughter of retired los angeles police officer randall quan. in dorner's alleged online rantings, he blamed randall quan for mishandling the appeal for his termination. dorner lost his appeal in 2011. before monica quan was killed, dorner allegedly made this threat in his writings. i never had the opportunity to have a family of my own. i'm terminating yours. police here know what they are up against. neighborhoods are on lockdown, intersections sealed off. officers on edge. so much so that two undercover lapd officers opened fire on a pickup truck they thought was dorner's. turns out it was two women delivering newspapers. one was reportedly shot in the hand. the other in the back. but they'll be okay. meantime, the lapd says it's doing all i
